    SWIM can confirm that whilst it is possible,its a bad idea...a really bad idea...slamming temazapam was a big thing amongst some of SWIMS friends back in the day,when temazapam were in gel form..
    IVing these waxy little devils resulted in so many nasty absesses,amputations and other life shortening problems that SWIM knows just one of that crew that is still able to function although she is both one legged and very frail..
    SWIM understands that these old school gel based capsules are no longer as common as they were and temazapam is now more normally found in pill form

    SWIM still believes that all of the usual dangers of shooting pills apply and he really thinks its a bad idea to do this..

    Back in the days when my fiend was really bad with heroin (using £50+ a day easy for a couple of years) he would inject all sorts of things, one of them was diazepam tablets and he also injected temazepam tablets. My fiend is extremely lucky he didn't kill himself doing this stuff cause he used to do it quite often, he was especially lucky when he injected 'Bensidine' (sp) white 10mg diazepam tablets, his whole body literally fizzed, that's the only way he can describe it and i think he was VERY lucky nothing bad happened, in fact maybe something did happen but he just wasn't aware of it.

    My fiend had considered that injecting temazepam capsules would be much easier because they are already in a very fine powder form, but he has no idea if the powder would just sink to the bottom like sediment (which is what he thinks might happen) or if it would be suspended in an 'emulsion'. Either way it's a bad idea and could end up causing serious problems like vascular occlusions (blockages in the blood vessals, veins and arteries) and if they happen in the small vessels in the brain it could cause a stroke or if it happened in small arteries in the heart it could cause a heart attack.

    Looking back my fiend wonders how he managed to get away with the shit he would inject and if there are such a thing as infinite universes where every possible outcome happens then he is certain that he is dead in at least half of them :p.

    In any case, the majority of benzo's just don't dissolve in water and even with injecting water soluble opiates like oxycodone and other pills is a very bad idea (unless it's done properly with wheel filters and proper extractions, this can't really be done with benzo's in the same way), so injecting non water soluble pills is crazy. MY fiend won't ever do it again just because it isn't worth it, the oral bioavailablity of benzo's is very high and oral absorption is rapid especially with a hot drink (and crush em with your front teeth). My fiend does say that he used to love injecting 7 x 10mg diazepam tablets in a 2ml barrerl with 2 bags of heroin, what a fucking buzz. Even although he liked it a lot, he can still get almost identical effects by eating the valium and waiting for them to start taking effect then use the heroin in his preferred methods of administration.


    Don't risk injecting pills, epically benzo's it just isn't worth it, and my fiend is just extremely lucky he didn't do himself some serious harm, well it did cause an abcess in one occasion that led to quite a nasty cellulitis that required hospital IV anti biotic for 5 days.

    SWIM used to shoot the Temazepam 'footies' when they were available (the green gel ones). The government here got rid of the footies because people were loosing arms etc and now only the tabs are available. Don't waste your time shooting benzos (esp in pill form), either it'll make a big wasteful mess or if it's the footies you may be lucky like SWIM and just end up with a hole in your hand where the great golf ball sized abscess was.:( Thankfully it isn't so big or noticeable anymore, but no more hand modeling for SWIM. SWIM was really a 'dumb' hand model in the day! Thank the Gods SWIM still has her arms! Look at it this way-it's really hard to shoot up with one or no arms!

    Re: temazepam

    Are temazepam gels still produced any where in the world?

    I thought they'd been discontinued due to a nasty habit of making people's limbs turn blue and cold (before going black)

    Re: temazepam

    the answer is yes plenty, and you are right plenty of people have succumb to the globules of oily terror,i had even read a story of a guy who's slug turned black but thats another story.it has to be broken down (which i wont waste on you),otherwise its very nasty business.Bottom line: there will always be horses for courses and there will always be judgmental prejudice.in future could people post answers to questions as opposed to useless one liners.thankyou Normy's son.

    Re: temazepam

    Ok, horses for courses and judgmental prejudice aside, IV use of temazepam gel caps is extremely dangerous. DF is about reducing the potential harm that some drugs (and methods of use) can cause, such as advising on safer IV practices.

    Injecting temazepam gel caps is totally insane, especially with all of the publicity about the possible results of this ROA. You risk vein blockages and gangrenous limbs. Eventually (if you're lucky) amputation is the only option. Now I'm not saying this is always the case, but it was found that so many addicts were having health issues directly related to temazepam IV use.

    Jatelka was just pointing this out. Your attitude is extremely provocative and totally patronising. SWIY doesn't wanna waste it on Jatelka, then maybe they could waste it on Sparkles. Sparkles had friends who lost limbs (and a couple their life) on this drug. Purely due to IV use. So please educate her?

    What is SWIY expecting? That people are gonna tell them how to inject these meds? It seems like they already know everything about this drug, so what can anyone here tell them? Unless of course this is about swapping war stories. From the topic title it's difficult to know what SWIY wants.

    "Temazepam" can mean so much, can't it?

    Now adjust the attitude, cos no one like a smart ass. And you are coming across as just that. Now you can join in this community and help us all learn about drugs, their effects, and help reduce harm. Or you can carry on and eventually get banned. Your choice.

    Sparkles.:vibes:

    Re: temazepam

    Swim thinks missparkles is wasting her kind heart here on somebody who doesn't deserve it.

    Swim has had the opportunity to try Temazepam many times but has never really had the volition to do it (primarily due to cheaper easier access to clonazepam, diazepam and alprazolam) but he's always being told that it's far "better", subjective as that is, it does make swim curious.

    the mylan POWDER temazepam is the question here, can it be shot, filtered w/ cotton and maybe cooked slightly?

    keep in mind these are powder forms of temazepam in capsules, no need to crush...
